Fanciful Feathers

This feather sash from Icing101 above is no longer available, but I just had to post it anyway. You could make something like this yourself! You should also check out the other items from Icing 101 that are available right now. So cute!

This sash made of feathers, grosgrain ribbon, and rhinestones is just so pretty! How could you not love this?! We are always seeing feathers in fashion, so making a purchase like this would not be considered a "trendy purchase." Of course there will be certain times of the year that you will wear feathers more. I tend to reach for anything feathery during the colder months of the year. They just look so fluffy and cozy! Feathers also look great worn for evening, since they can look extremely elegant.

I was skeptical about purchasing this feather sash from Talbots since I didn't think it would be something I would wear often. Turns out I was wrong! I even dress up some of my hats with it from time to time!

What I wore:
~ winter white spaghetti strap tank from Banana Republic
~ puff sleeve cardigan from Victoria's Secret
~ feather and bead ribbon sash from Talbots
~ scarlet red pencil skirt from Talbots
~ Cole Haan microfiber knee high kitten heel boots

This ivory and blush silk flower & feather ribbon sash is actually meant for a bride, but she could wear it with many outfits for years to come! I found it on this adorable website called Deanna DiBene. Be sure to check out all of her creations! Very fun and unique :)

And I just had to share with you that I received my Neiman Marcus Christmas Book yesterday! I always feel like a kid when I get it. Remember going through Sears and Service Merchandise catalogs and circling everything you wished for??? I sure do. If I could have any one item in this catalog, it would be this wool and feather jacket by Elizabeth and James. LOVE IT!!!
